Summary: We wanted to replace a computer for our kids, so this eMachines unit without a moniter was perfect. The features are great for a computer not meant to do a lot more than look up videos and play music. Large Harddrive and a DVD player make it uber-functional. It has a slick and trim look, which appealed to the boys. My only complaint is that it has a vertical DVD/CD drive a al the Xbox 360. This makes it a little harder to feel confident putting CD/DVD in the unit.
Summary: I use the emachine to access the internet and to work on my bookstore. I also use the emachine to interact with other emahines. I like the price and the fact of its compatibility. I would like to see manufacturers supply a boot disk with the product. I do not especially like the pre installed model available today.
Pros: Easyfun affordable, Easy To Set Up, Powerful, Quiet, Versatile
Summary: I basically use PC for e-mails and looking up info. I am also an avid game player and have about 60 games I play. I am not only technically challenged, I am close to totally computer illiterate. I wish "help" instructions were not so complicated...via terms used...so that any time I need to "learn" to do something I am so frustrated that I become quite upset..
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Never Freezes, Powerful, Quiet, Saves Desk Space, Slim Trim
Cons: No instructions to set up, No Usage Instructions
Summary: Bought it for general use at home. I'm unemployed and this computer works great for communicating with the unemployment office and the job oppurtunity sights. I'm hooked up to Roadrunner as my ISP.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Chess and hearts games, Easy To Setup, Easy To Use, Quiet
